Bright & Cheerful!

I made this card at the weekend, when it was dull & miserable outside...with the hope that it would bring us some sunshine...and guess what? It has - yippee! I've used one of the stamps from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black...I think I must have developed a bit of a thing for PB hedgehogs...as I've got two more cards using them lined up for the weekend! The gorgeously sunny papers are from the 'Hippity Hoppity' scrapbook pad by We R Memory Keepers (found in the clearance pile at TKMaxx), and the flowers are all by Prima. I've added some rainbow ribbon (from Hobbycraft) and a Cuddly Buddly sentiment.
